View Full Version : Connecting 2 IB Accounts
I have Ninja 5 setup but cant quite figure out how to get my second IB account to show up in Accounts. I have tried everything. Yes, the API settings are all turned on. Can you give me a clue what I am doing wrong? Thanks

Do you mean two separate instances of TWS?
No, one instance. I guess I thought I could multiple accounts from one instance in Ninja. Yes, I have two IB TWS account windows open. Thanks

You can connect one NT instance to two separate running instances of TWS. Let me be clear on what I am asking. Do you run two copies of TWS? If yes, then set the port number in one TWS instance to 7496 (lets call this connection A) and set the port number in the other TWS to 4000 (connection B). You set the port number within TWS via Configure-->API-->Port (or something close to that).
In NT, go to to Tools-->Account Connections. Create a connection for connection A and set the appropriate user name/password and the port to 7496. Then create another connection for connection B.
Thanks Vincent, I will do that, I thought I needed to do something like that but could not find it in any document, again, thanks.
